Our own Fr. Tim Kulbicki, OFM Conv. served as our Order’s Secretary of the Executive Committee for the Revision of the Constitutions & as Secretary of the 202nd Ordinary General Chapter, while continuing to serve in his own province assigned ministries. The final drafting and approval of the Revised Constitutions at the Extraordinary General Chapter took place in 2018. For several years, Friar Tim spent time also traveling around the world, visiting the Order’s friars to provide academic conferences and friary presentations, in order to help the friars of our Order “receive” and implement the Revised Constitutions, which went into effect on February 2, 2019, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord and the World Day for Consecrated Life.
Franciscan Voice has provided a 12-part podcast of the Constitutions.
Now serving as Pastor and Campus Minister of our Chapel Hill, NC pastoral and university ministry ~ Newman Catholic Student Center Parish UNC at Chapel Hill, Friar Tim still travels to present the Constitutions of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual to new friars. He recently travelled to the St. Francis of Assisi Friary – Inter-Provincial Novitiate, in Arroyo Grande, CA, so that this year’s Novitiate Class could attended Friar Tim’s class on the Constitutions of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual, as part of the preparation for their Simple (Temporary/First) Professions, coming up in the Summer of 2023.
Take some time to visit the Novitiate’s Website to keep up with the Novices throughout the year.
